In the two articles „Magnetic Levitation – The Easy Way“ and „Magnetic Levitation – The digital Way“ I described how to build a circuit that can keep a small object well in levitation. Only readily available components should be needed for both set-ups and the electromagnet should be as simple as possible to produce. In […]

I created this project some time ago as an example for newbies to ANNEX RDS, a BASIC-interpreter that runs in an ESP8266 or ESP32 . A clock – both analogue and digital …  … consisting of – ESP8266-Wemos-D1-Mini, – TM1637 4digit 7-segment display – SG90 mini-servo and some cheap peripheral components like – a LDR […]

If someone thinks I like clocks of all kinds … he might be right A project with a dot matrix clock of CiccioCB, the author of ANNEX32, an ESP32 BASIC-Interpreter,  inspired me a little.So I went back to my late childhood, spent a couple of hours gluing a model airplane together … added some soldering […]

eCO2-Traffic-Light A cheap Traffic-Light-style gas detector (ESP32 + CCS811 + 3 LEDs) that gives an indication of when to open the windows in a room with a lot of exhaled and thus possibly polluted air. The intention of this project was to have a simple device that gives an indication of when to open the […]

  Often a hobby electronics engineer with his great circuit projects remains quite unnoticed by his family and friends. The understanding and the appreciation of non-electronic engineers for e.g. a self-built oscillator or a servo control is not very big . However, I have always received a lot of praise and appreciation for my Tranquili-T […]

Magnetic-Levitation-Object that needs only … an ESP32Pico M5Stack „ATOM LITE“ or „ATOM MATRIX“ a modified simple 5V-relais and a HALL-sensor A1302/A1308. The wooden carrier is made of an embroidery frame. After I had successfully built up a „Magnetic Levitation Object“ in conventional analog design and described that in article „Magnetic Levitation – The Easy Way“ , I […]

A MAGNETIC LEVITATION project with no special but only standard components – including a modified cheap standard relay as the electromagnet – powered with only 50mA@5V from a USB-Powerbank A floating object is always a fascinating eye-catcher that I like to put on my desk. Many conversations at this table got off to a nice […]

A hardware and software project for a friend who loves clocks in all variants. It has  two concentric NeoPixel rings and some moving parts to form a kinetic object that can even display time in an old-fashioned „analog“ way :-). Hours are displayed on the inner ring, minutes and seconds on the outer ring.The electronics […]
